Then let's specify all the possible fields. Quite a number of people
like to also specify the original destination, and some like to set
the original Host header when their reverse-proxies rewrite it before
passing on the request.

So we could have something like (non exhaustive) :
  - from
  - to
  - proto
  - host

Or maybe even better, let's have all the information available in
separate fields for easier parsing :

  - family (v4/v6)
  - src4
  - src6
  - sport
  - dst4
  - dst6
  - dport
  - host
  - proto

Cheers,
Willy
